    So if this Man of Steel is only medium level relative to other super-heroes in action, why does this guy get the Superman name? You would think one of the other heroes would be called Superman, like...

    Given comic book logic on last names, Tim Drake should be the legacy Black Canary.
  3. Besides Hal Jordan, Fillion has often been...

    Besides Hal Jordan, Fillion has often been fan-cast as Booster Gold. He might be a bit long in the tooth to play either, but then there's Tom Cruise. So, as long as you're a man, they'll probably let...
  4. I believe that when the Earth-One Black Canary...

    I believe that when the Earth-One Black Canary was retconned in 1983 to be the daughter of the original Black Canary, it was then established that the second Dinah was a mutant or a metahuman (maybe...
  5. I think the most thankless task was the...

    I think the most thankless task was the letterer--at least back in the day when there were people who really did letter comics by hand. I read an article, many years ago now, by one fellow who had...

    Alan Moore's Superman felt like it was paying most of its tribute to the Mort Weisinger era and less so to the Julius Schwartz era. So he was giving focus to things that had been more prevalent...
  7. The thing I don't understand is why they had to...

    The thing I don't understand is why they had to take Wonder Woman out of the JLA when she gave up her powers. The initial run of mod Diana stories were scripted by Denny O'Neil, who was also writing...

    I think the Canary Cry was just something Denny O'Neil came up with to justify why BC should get membership in the League. It's the thing that convinces them to let her in. Yet Wonder Woman left when...

    Prior to the 1970s, most creators didn't get anything. In the overwhelming number of cases, publishers were able to claim it's work for hire and never paid a cent in royalties. Siegel and Shuster...

    In the late 1970s, DC began offering royalties/creative rights that were more attractive than what Marvel was offering and many writers and artists came to DC from Marvel for that reason. But I don't...

    I would rank John Byrne the Superman artist much higher than John Byrne the Superman writer. And I would rank their combined work on the SUPERMAN & BATMAN: GENERATIONS prestige comics well above...

    On TV and in movies, the writers are always ignoring what's in the source material and making up completely new stuff. The important thing for Sony Pictures is that they can hang the Spider-Man...

    Being already grown up by the time the first Star Wars movie came out, I always thought it was intentionally silly and stupid--like a Sid and Marty Krofft production of Flash Gordon--and that every...

    Somehow every discussion of Superman becomes a discussion of Batman. Maybe because they've traded places--and Batman is now the fantastic, incredible character, while Superman is bounded by logical...

    I think with Aquaman you could have made a similar argument to Disney's Little Mermaid. The orginal Disney movie has a certain Caribbean flavour, so it makes sense to update the mer-people as...

    Good to see you agree with my suggestion. Normally, when it comes to human characters, I don't think the race-bending works that well. Because what you want with an ethnicity is to show that...

    In today's world, it pays to be a show-off. You have to be extra to get attention. The subdued Superman doesn't work. To get the attention of the audience, he has to put on a show. It's less about...

    I saw that Sony got about 900 characters when they bought the Spider-Man rights. I don't know who all these would be--probably many supporting characters--but there are no small parts only small...

    A lot of this comes down to budget--at least for the CW shows. It costs money to build sets and hire extras, if Iris is working at Picture News. It costs no money if Iris is at STAR Labs, because the...

    What if there was no Batman family.

    In 1986, when they rebooted Superman, they got rid of the family and all the other Kryptonians. It was back to basics with Superman being the only survivor of...

    In early Batman, the city isn't usually identified, but it is called New York at least once that I know, in DETECTIVE COMICS 31. Finally, in Batman 4, it's called Gotham City.

    In early Superman,...

    In the 1960s and even 1970s, some publishers used a flat yellow for Asian characters where DC used an orange shade (the magenta and yellow plates). Once they moved to offset printing, the colourists...

    In Ralph and Sue Dibny's DETECTIVE run, in the 1960s, they travelled all over the United States and I don't recall them ever going to a real city (outside of the USA, yes, but not in the States). Of...
